Just Sayin'..



Pete Du Pont in the Wall Street journal, after a summary of the stew of dismal numbers and questionable prolicies we now incubate in, says that Hillary Rodham [Clinton] is now the white knight who will ride in and save us from the pathetic incompetence of out current Pantload-o Supremo:

So what can be done to change America's policies and make our economy stronger? For one thing, we could elect a president with different thinking. Almost any Republican candidate would have that, and, as we will see in a moment, there is one obvious Democrat who would change our course too.

And why would the Democratic Party want to do that? Because the re-election of President Obama is becoming more problematic. The latest Rasmussen Reports polls show the dramatic decline of the presidential approval index, the difference between those who "strongly approve" of Mr. Obama's performance and those who "strongly disapprove." It began at plus 25% when the new president was sworn in, and has steadily declined to minus 13%.

It isn't just the president whose poll numbers are falling fast. According to recent Harris polling, Vice President Biden viewed favorably by 26% of the public and unfavorably by 45%. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi does even worse, 20% positive to 49% negative. A June Nevada poll gave Sen. Harry Reid, the majority leader, 33% approval and 52% disapproval.

But the greatest contrast and most interesting statistic is Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's ratings: 45% favorable and only 35% unfavorable.

I am all at sea on this one; I still am extremely leery of Ms Clinton and her motives but I would welcome a challenge from her in the primaries to jostle up Obama and his battalion of thugs. It would get the HillBuzz Boyz in the game and goodness knows those great guys deserve another turn in the lists with other than an unbroken lance.

Irrespective of your feelings one way or t'other, it's come to this: Chimpy, the Kenyan has done such a terrible job thus far that people actually are considering Clinton and option and actually long for the "good old days" under Carter.

Yep, just like ole' druken Teddy challenged Carter in his vie for a 2nd term.

Will we conservatives get a Reagan on steroids this time?

We were on the same wavelength this morning. I did a post on this, too.
Mr. DuPont seems to think Hillary is a person with "different thinking". Hillary is Obama in a pants suit...there is no difference.

There is a difference, Obama is in over his head, surrounded by incompetent Chicago morans.

WP - I know what you mean here...I can't believe that I look back to 'Bubba' fondly when confronted by the 'pantload' as you refer to him.

PS - Not judging here but I would jettison the reference at the end of this post....

They realistically expect the Kenyan and his thugs to take one for the good of the Democrat brand and just step aside? Man, I want some of what they're smoking.

I don't see a lot of difference between the half-white / half-black Kenyon man and the white women ... they're both Communists!
